ICRE 2017 Location Change

Due to unexpected delays in the construction of the new Halifax Convention Centre, the 2017 International Conference on Residency Education (ICRE) will no longer be held in Halifax, Canada.

The Royal College is currently hard at work making alternate venue arrangements, and will be making its official announcement about the new conference location early next week.

The October 19-21, 2017 dates for the upcoming conference will remain the same. Stay tuned for more information.
